A cardboard cutout of Ricky Rubio's face came out on the court, and Westbrook went out to pick it up. He either cruppled it up or pretended to as he grinned as Jazz fans.

I spoke to Rockets guard Eric Gordon at his locker a few minutes ago and asked him if he was aware that his 3rd quarter, buzzer beater 3 was for the 50 point quarter. "No I had no idea when I took it. I was pumped when I hit it because I knew we built a big lead. When I got back to the bench the guys told me and I was in shock. I knew we shot it well, but 50! Damn!"

Westbrook has been markedly better in this first quarter than he was last game. Looks completely engaged and most importantly, decisive.

Wolves guard Jeff Teague says his right pinky finger was dislocated when he left the game in the 1st quarter. He had to pop it back into place.

Russell Westbrook picks up an early second foul, picking up Rubio full court. Slight contact and Rubio smartly sold it and fell down. Westbrook waved off the bench for an early sub after the foul.

The early intensity in this one is absolutely off the charts.

Tom Thibodeau on the third quarter: "That first six minutes, we gave them everything."

Russell Westbrook on Ricky Rubio, and he's in aggressive defensive stance, even clapping his hands at Rubio after he shut off his first drive attempt.

Mike D'Antoni on the Rockets' 50-point third quarter: "It's all adjustments."

Stefano Fusaro ESPN 

The Rockets 50 point 3rd quarter obviously did the Wolves in, in their 119-100 defeat. Not a single word was spoken by the Wolves players as they walked to the locker room. Should be an interesting postgame.

50. Yea 50 point quarter for the Rockets in the 3rd. 100-69 Houston heading into the 4th

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

James Harden and Chris Paul combined for 37 of the Rockets' 50 points in the third quarter. Houston matched its point total from the first half.

Stefano Fusaro ESPN 

You can forget about Harden's 0 for 7 start. Since then he is 11 for 16....22 of his 34 points have come here in the 3rd quarter. Game 4 is getting away from the Wolves here.
